This Pomegranate Curd and White Chocolate Tart is a showstopper that is perfect to take to your next holiday or special occasion party. The crust is made from a combination of graham crackers and macadamia nut, with a pomegranate curd layer topped with a sweet, white chocolate layer. Decorated with sugared rosemary and pomegranate arils, it’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
I know this is going to shock and upset a lot of people but I’m not a traditional Thanksgiving pie type of person. Pecan and pumpkin pie don’t really excite me the way this tart does or even the one I made last year for the holidays. Remember that one? Yeah, I’m going to name drop it. The beautiful Cranberry Curd Tart. So each year, I try to come up with something different, that’s beautiful, and delicious, and not so fatty but still luscious and divine.
Have I caught your interest yet? Well, I’ll tell you what. This year’s tart is definitely a showstopper and a game changer. I love a graham cracker crust but adding the macadamia nuts in adds this element of earthiness that take the crust to another level.
As for the pomegranate curd, well, that was a gamble. One that paid off real well too. Honestly, I wasn’t sure how it was going to play out but I couldn’t do cranberry curd again so pomegranates seemed to be my given decision. I went with a standard curd recipe with the added pomegranate juice. A little extra sugar to balance the tartness in it, but it worked out. For the chocolate, I made a white chocolate bark at first. That didn’t work out so well with the textures so back to the drawing board I went. And the tubelight went off. A white chocolate ganache! Oh it’s so divine! That’s all I can say.
Tips and Tricks:
If you don’t have a tart pan, use a springform pan instead. It will work just as fine.
If you don’t have a food processor to grind the graham crackers, place them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
Dark or Milk Chocolate is a great substitute instead of White Chocolate.
You can use a premade pie crust to cut out a step and make life easier
Dust the top of your tart with icing sugar to cover up any imperfections – no one will be able to tell!
